It is possible that the motheboard has gone bad.  The power brick could also have developed a short in the cable.  I would first see if you could use a different porwe cable and try that.  If that doesn't work, then i would suggest changing the motherboard if possible.

My Dell Latitude D160 won't respond at all. I have to constantly push the power on button to even get it to come on and when it does, the battery light is on red and I think it says low critical power...


I'm confused too... it sounds like the power adapter is not (electrically) connecting to the laptop or the adapter is not delivering proper voltage/amps to the laptop.

You shoud 1. make sure that the AC plug is properly in the AC socket, 2. that the AC cord is (mechanically) connected to the adapter, and 3. that the adapter is (mechanically) connected to the laptop.

I cannot tell you how many laptops I have seen where the (internal) power connector breaks as a result of (typically) mis-handling, dropping, etc. Try (gently) wiggling the adapter connector and look for the LED changing colors.

You could also test the voltage output of the adapter with a standard Volt meter...

Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

My Dell Latitude D810 won't even start up. All I have is the bluetooth light. Can you please help?


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Dell latitude 100L power light flashes green as if


It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.

Latitude d520 will not recognize power adapter


I have heard about this problem with a number of Dell laptops, including the Inspiron models. The problem is that the connector for the power port may have been loosened after many years of use. This may require service from Dell on the motherboard.
